Update on our Virtual Celebration - June 24

We are contacting you today with updates regarding our virtual celebration for our graduates.

As you probably know by now, due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and the public health order banning large public gatherings, VIU will not be having in-person convocation ceremonies in 2021. We are now well under way with our plans for a fun and interactive Virtual Celebration honouring our graduates.  This event will take place on June 24, 2021.

We want you to be aware of the opportunity to become a Faculty valedictorian and also how to arrange for commemorative graduation portraits. 

  • We are now accepting nominations for valedictorians (one per Faculty is required.)  The nomination deadline is March 15, 2021.  For full details on how to nominate yourself to become a valedictorian, click the following link:  Valedictorian Selection Process 
  • Lifetouch Photography is now booking in-studio photo sessions for the VIU graduating class of 2021. For full details, click the following link: Graduate Photography Sign-up 

To those of you who have already completed your program requirements, Congratulations!  To those of you currently in the final stages, we wish you all the best for success as you finish the remaining requirements!
